Enjoying a stunning location with uninterrupted views of the lake and over the picturesque unspoilt village of Faggeto Lario, this fabulous luxury getaway is a real treat for holidaying couples, travelling by themselves or with up to 2 children, or for two couples traveling together. Set in a development of 22 apartments in lavish gardens, the property enjoys a clean and tasteful contemporary interior throughout, including a modernist-style fully-fitted kitchen with integrated cabinets and providing all the desired appliances for an enjoyable self-catering stay. A spacious dining area is furnished with a stylish white round table and designer chairs, perfect for holding dinner parties. Guests can enjoy dining ‘alfresco’ with a romantic breakfast or afternoon tea area overlooking the lake and the 300 year old church, the inspiration of many an artist.. A sunny lawn provides guests with a delightful spot where they can enjoy a picnic or a glass of wine or they can relax under the sun with a good book on one of the sun loungers provided next to the swimming pool, both offer the perfect excuse for plenty of relaxation and enjoyment of the stunning lake views. The property interior further boasts a chic and tasteful master bedroom furnished with elegant white minimalist furniture and a double bed. There is a comfortable double sofa bed in the living area, for up two children or (at modest additional charge) another couple. There is high-speed internet at your disposal, plus an expanding library of DVD's (200+ at the last count), books (many of them hard-to-find and beautifully illustrated editions covering the history and culture of the region), as well as information and guide books covering the local area. So you will have plenty to keep you occupied on a rainy day, when the lake takes on a surreal new beauty. A contemporary well-fitted bathroom provides guests with a shower, wash basin, WC and bidet, easily accessible to those sleeping in the living room via the master bedroom. A private secure parking space is included with the rental of the property and the local village amenities are all within walking distance. The beach and jetty for the lake ferry service are less than 5 minutes by foot, as are a bar and the highly rated 'Il Vapore' restaurant. There also a bus service running from Como to Bellagio, the stop is 50m from the entrance to the property. Please note that this is a non-smoking property; smoking is permitted only in the outdoor areas. Also, we regret we are unable to accommodate pets. The cosmopolitan lake city of Como is just a 20 minute drive south of Faggeto Lario with its elegant cafe-lined piazzas, bustling shopping boulevards, historical central and magnificent Duomo to explore. The tree-lined lakefront and park provides the ideal place to leisurely enjoy a relaxed morning or afternoon picnic and the famous Volta museum, historical Spanish Quarter and the palatial Villa Olmo which provides a year round calendar of excellent art exhibitions will keep culture vultures more than satisfied. There is also an excellent selection of restaurants and the vibrant city nightlife is also well worth experiencing during your stay. For the best panoramic views of the lake visitors are recommended to take the charming Funicular railway from Como up to the mountainside to Brunate. Como provides excellent transport links as well with two mainline stations linking to Milan (and Malpensa Airport) and into Switzerland, plus a fast and frequent ferry service, a main lake road with convenient bus service and a modern motorway leading to the wider Lombardy region and to Switzerland's fourth largest city of Lugano, capital of the Canton of Ticino. Guests can easily enjoy Lake Como at their leisure by exploring the famous golden triangle towns of Bellagio (which is only a 30 minute drive away), Menaggio and Varenna, the elegant dream like villas and gardens, hiking or cycling in the Triangolo Larioso, enjoying an unhurried romantic dinner nearby the property or in Como and also enjoying the wide variety of activities on Lake Como, which include swimming, sailing, power boat hire, sea plane adventures, tennis, golf, hiking, cycling, windsurfing, chartered yacht hire and quad biking. The Lake Como area is a year-round destination. The city is a Christmas shopper's haven, renowned for its imaginative gift shops and designer stores, also its bustling street markets. It is a happening place at any time of the year. The weather in the spring and autumn is usually very settled, the temperatures are comfortable both day and night, ideal for walking and cycling. The skies are deep blue and with the flowers blooming or the leaves turning, the area is a feast for the eyes in both seasons. And nowhere more so than the view from our property, which ranges from the mesmerising to the intoxicating. Please come and enjoy.More

About the neighborhood
Faggeto Lario is a quiet and peaceful village, on the waterfront below the property. There is a bar and the famed 'Vapore' Restaurant, which is hit with all of our guests. It has a ferry service to Como and to Bellagio. It is 2km from Torno, a larger village known for its picturesque harbour. There is a great restaurant (also called 'Vapore', no relation). A wonderful place to enjoy the afternoon sun and sunsets. The are more frequent ferry services from Torno, and a free car park. From the main road there is a regular (hourly) bus service that connects with Como and Bellagio, also into the hilly interior to the villages of Molina, Lemna and Palanza. Bus fares are about EUR 3.00, and tickets need to be purchased at local shops and cafes
Getting around
Other than ferries and buses, we recommend you rent a car. There are rental firms in Como, otherwise you can rent from the main railway terminus stations in Milan or at any of the airports (Malpensa, Linate, Bergamo). The Visitors' Guide will provide you with a lot of information on places to visit in the area. The choice is huge, there is something for everyone.
